Рубрика SMALL TALK, в ней мы рассказываем самое интересное о Ваших любимых автомобильных брендах. Сегодня необычный факт. У первого Land Rover руль был посередине! Оригинал Land Rover по образцу американских джипов времен Второй Мировой Войны был разработан инженером Ровер-Морис Вилкс, владельцем фермы в Уэльсе. Задумав Rover как сельскохозяйственный автомобиль, Уилкс решил сохранить компоновку более простой и похожей на тракторную, поставив руль посередине. Это также означало, что Rover мог увернуться от неудобства проектирования двух разных версий одного и того же автомобиля для рынков левого и правого привода. The rubric SMALL TALK, here you can find the most interesting facts about your favorite car brands. Today we tell you about an unusual fact. The steering wheel of the first Land Rover was in the middle! The original Land Rover, modeled after the American Jeeps from World War II, was designed by the engineer Rover-Maurice Wilks, who had a farm in Wales. Rover was conceived as an agricultural vehicle, that's why Wilkes decided to keep the layout more simple and similar to the tractor, placed the steering wheel in the middle. This fact also meant Rover could dodge the inconvenience of designing two different versions of the same car for the right-hand and left-hand drive markets#landrover#landroverlife#roverway#automotivestory#accessories#brand#comfort#winter#likeforlike#лэндровер#история#зима#стиль#аксессуары#autobrandshop

No caption needed 😍 courtesy picture of @landrover #LR70. The 5.0 litre naturally-aspirated petrol V8 powertrain produces 398 hp at 6,000 rpm and 515 Nm at 5,000 rpm, well up from that of a standard Defender’s 120 hp and 360 Nm. Performance numbers include a 0-100 km/h time of 5.6 secs and a 170 km/h top speed. The V8 powertrain – paired with an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission with sport mode – will be fitted to 150 specially-selected and re-engineered Defenders for the 70th Edition 😎#landroverdefender #landrover #landroverlife #carwash #pamperingday #onelifeliveit #landroverdefender110

We'd love to hit the #mountains in this thing - too bad they're only making 150 units (also, we couldn't afford it). Arriving this year, the new #Defender Works V8 is the most powerful model to date w 405-hp, 0-60mph in 5.6s, & top-speed of 106mph. Looks ok too. #TractionLife
